Nothing Unlucky About Visiting the Disneyland Resort On This Friday the 13th

With the past week or so, the weather has been quite cool.  And I get cold easily.  But today, the weather was tolerable without a jacket.

Let's see what the Disneyland Resort has in store for us this week.

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland
Starting at Disneyland

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Emporium
As I entered Town Square,  I noticed hanging Christmas cards on the second floor of the Emporium

I want to say that I have seen these before, but it's the little details like these that what make Disneyland

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Center Street, Flower Market
Around the Market House, something from "old" Disneyland reappeared

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Center Street, Flower Market
Although a smaller version of its previous life, the Flower Market has returned to Center Street

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Center Street, Flower Market
But unlike the old Flower Market, where one could purchase flowers (that were fake), this Flower Market is just for show only

The Flower Market is Christmas themed

If you look to the right, the Flower Market leaves only a small path to the Lockers in back.  And this little path also serves as one part of an exit and entrance to the Market House, which recently started serving Starbucks coffee
The left side path is blocked by the Main Street Fruit Cart (not pictured)

Will the Flower Market be temporary and just used as decoration during different times of the year? (i.e. Christmas and Easter)
Or will the Flower Market be permanent on Center Street?

I didn't do the Secret name badge as it was all kids and pre-teens in line.
But I later found out that my elf name would have been "M.M. Dandy"

A while ago Flik's Flyers reopened after a small refurbishment

The one thing I noticed was that the Cast Members open each carriage manually.
Previously the ride would slowly descend and one it got to the bottom, the doors would open automatically.
